Flag it Up.

Time for a new Challenge over on the Butterfly Challenge where the  theme is:

I have two versions to show you today as your inspiration. 

First card Using Version I which is for 3 flags inside your card. 

I have used the following from the wheel.
Flag Fold/Fabric/French Pink/Forest Green/ Butterfly.

The design paper on the front is by BoBunny from the Little Miss Collection paper pad and the inside  paper is a digi paper by Blossom Paper Art from their Pink birds 2 collection.  Green stripe is from their Peach and green Floral 2 collection.  Instructions are over on the butterfly blog under the card shapes tag.  The lace and the gold butterfly stickers were from my stash.  Sentiment stamp on the front is by Kaisercraft and the one on the inside was a freebie in a craft magazine. 
Photo below shows the concertina folds that hold the flags. 

Entering this card into the following challenges:

Second  card Using Version II which is for 5 flags inside your card. 

I have used the following from the wheel.
Flag Fold//French Pink/Forest Green/ Butterfly

Design Paper on the front is from a paper pad by The Paper Boutique called Butterfly Ballet. The digital  pink stripe paper  is  by Blossom Paper  Art  from their Pink birds 2 collection.  The silver stickers are from my stash. 
Photo below shows the concertina folds that hold the flags and the arrangement for 5 flags. 
Entering this card into the following challenges:

Butterfly challenge will be running again for 3 weeks so will close on 25th November. Do hope you will find time during the new ' Lock Down' to come and have a play.  This is the last challenge for this year. The butterflies will be cocooned for the winter months and will return in the New Year. I am hoping that the Wretched Elf will not be putting in  an appearance this yr due to the travel restrictions in place from the North Pole and the  strict 20 day quarantine rules. I have a plan up my sleeve though just in case!!

Stay Safe and Well
and Batten Down those Hatches.
